March 13, 2004

Three-set wins at No. 3 and No. 5 singles helped Florida Atlantic overcome a 3-2 deficit to top Yale 4-3 Saturday morning in Florida. The Bulldogs (4-5) took the doubles point with wins at No. 2 (8-3 from the team of Aimee Kim and Rashmee Patil) and at No. 3 (8-4 from the team of Christina Alford and Olivia Nix). The Owls (10-3) won the next two singles matches, but Yale got victories at No. 4 (Patil) and No. 6 (Nix) to go up 3-2 before FAU's late heroics.
